4600 kilometers, foreigner Didi traveled by taxi from Sanya to Urumqi, breaking world record
With development of science and technology in China, food, clothing, housing and transportation are becoming more and more convenient. With apps like Meituan Waimai, Taobao, and Didi Taxi on rise, today I'm going to talk about some of them. what happened at Didi Taxi is an interesting story.
Everyone knows that Didi taxi rides are very common in our daily life. In perception of all, these are trips for short distances, and they will not take long-distance taxis. But there are two French boys who subvert this knowledge, they are about to set a world record starting from Sanya, China's most southeastern city.
To Urumqi, China's most northwestern city, over 4,600 kilometers in total, it's an unimaginable distance! Everyone felt that no driver wanted to take this order, many drivers first thought that place was wrong when they saw this order, or simply canceled route.
This upset French boys very much, they could not understand why no one wanted to take order, but God paid, driver agreed to take order, and they finally set off. Everyone is wondering why this driver is willing to take on this order?
Some people suggested that driver also wanted to take this opportunity to see great rivers and mountains of motherland, and was used to pay bill, so why didn't he take it? , I'll tell you all in confidence, this Frenchman's name is "Steel Egg", and other person's name is "Stupid". The driver saw their interesting names, so he called himself "Dog Dan" too. Three Egg Brothers is about to start.
What was their journey like? What wonderful things will happen? On first night, since they need to take a boat to get to Hainan Island, they need to take car to boat where they wrestled hands, sang and danced. together. However, fare was more than 1200 yuan, but Hainan had not yet left, and Gan Dan began to get upset that money had been spent like water.
However, delicious food and beautiful scenery quickly affected their love of money, and they felt too happy. All way ahead, passing beautiful scenery of Guizhou, fare at this time is 3500 yuan, they arrived in Chongqing at first stop, how can they get into Chongqing without eating hot pot Wool cloth?
Interestingly, they also put pizza in Chongqing Hot Pot. After eating local delicacies in Chongqing, they hit road again. They came to Shaanxi and ate local roujiamo. Steel Deng ate roujiamo and said, "If you explain it to me, it doesn't matter." if sky is dead, I did it.
Then we came to Lanzhou, ate Lanzhou ramen, they felt that this ramen was really easy to guess. Along way, three of them talked and laughed, ate and drank, and were amazed by beauty of China's great rivers and mountains, and as we Chinese dogs, we are inevitably amazed.
Goudang said that although he was Chinese, he had never seen him and felt unprecedented freedom and happiness. On this road, you will not be distracted by family chores, it will make you forget about troubles for a while and will allow you to focus on beauty of this road.
On sixth day, they came to Gobi Desert in Gansu, which is deserted and empty, which also means that they will soon come to Xinjiang. They finally arrived at border of Xinjiang, three of them cheered in car, Xinjiang's enthusiasm really lived up to its reputation, first person from Xinjiang they met gave a cantaloupe.
However, as they say, you have to pay for happiness. What greets them is expensive fare. Gangdan is a little afraid to look at fare on his phone. In total, they created 14684.86 yuan. world of taxi records. In end, two boys in France asked the driver a question: “If I asked you again, from Urumqi to Sanya, would you still agree?”
The driver readily answered in affirmative. Eventually, Frenchman contracted Didi's driver to return to Sanya and also gave Didi's driver and his wife a free road trip. This French couple did many incredible things: they launched watermelons to a height of 3,000 feet, and then followed him on ground, eating pepper while skydiving...
What inspiration does this story give us? This story also caused a heated discussion: from an economic point of view, a driver cannot earn a lot of money for such a long distance, plus gas station fees.
But I think that meaning of this world record exceeded meaning of making money. They felt great rivers and mountains of their homeland along way, and money cannot buy customs and customs that they felt along way. The incredible things these French boys have done tell us that interesting souls are rare in a hundred. Maybe you think life is boring. This pair of French boys tells us through their actions what we should learn from boredom of life. we must always maintain spirit of bold exploration of world!
